The majority of Lake Minnetonka is in Hennepin County, with a small portion of its southwest edge crossing into Carver County. Maritime Heritage Minnesota (MHM) received a private donation in September 2011 and a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Grant in November 2011 to conduct a side and down imaging sonar survey of Lower Lake Minnetonka and Crystal Bay in the Upper Lake in Hennepin County. Prior to this survey, only six wrecks were widely known. Of these, the Office of the State Archaeologist (OSA) recognized only one of these wrecks as a nautical archaeological site â the streetcar steamboat White Bear. Through the Lake Minnetonka Survey 1 Project (LMS-1), MHM has identified three additional wreck sites in Lower Lake Minnetonka, the steamboat pier and remains on Big Island as an archaeological site, and completed the Minnesota archaeological site forms necessary to recognize the five previously known sites with State site numbers. Further, MHM has located additional wreck sites that require further research to determine if they qualify for a site number, other anomalies that are probable and possible wrecks, and anomalies that may represent maritime infrastructure or even sunken fish houses.
